    Default Jared Leto 'in talks to play The Joker' in the upcoming DC Comics film Suicide Squad

    Jared Leto 'in talks to play The Joker' in the upcoming DC Comics film Suicide Squad
    He recently won an Oscar for his groundbreaking performance in Dallas Buyers Club.
    And Jared Leto is reportedly looking to follow up that career-defining role by portraying one of the most iconic villains in pop culture history.
    According to The Wrap, the 42-year-old is 'circling' to play The Joker in the upcoming film Suicide Squad.



    Gotham bound: Jared Leto is 'circling' to play The Joker in the upcoming film Suicide Squad

    While there has been no official confirmation, if Leto gets the part he would follow in the illustrious footsteps of the late Heath Ledger, Jack Nicholson and Cesar Romero, who all previously starred as the Gotham City maniac in film and on television.
    Ledger went on to win a posthumous Oscar for his critically acclaimed performance in The Dark Knight.
    Since winning his Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in Dallas Buyers Club, the handsome star had been focusing on his music career and has yet to solidify his next role.
    But the 30 Seconds To Mars singer seems eager to morph into some sort of superhero character as he was rumoured to have been in contention for the titular role in Marvel's Doctor Strange. That part has allegedly been offered to Benedict Cumberbatch.

    Blockbuster in the making: Suicide Squad is based on the popular DC Comic and follows a group of supervillains

    Directed by David Ayers, Suicide Squad was recently announced as the first DC Comics and Warner Bros. co-venture and will follow Zach Snyders' Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice.
    The film deals with a group of supervillains who are given a chance to redeem themselves on a secret mission that is virtually guaranteed to prove fatal.
    According to The Wrap, 'Tom Hardy, Will Smith and Margot Robbie are in various stages of discussions' for key roles in the movie based on the popular comic book series.

    Margot Robbie Set for Harley Quinn in 'Suicide Squad'!

    Margot Robbie has reportedly signed on to play the villainous Harley Quinn in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, Colliderreports.
    The 24-year-old Australian actress is reportedly set to play opposite of Jared Leto, who will play the Joker. The film will focus on Deadshot, King Shark, Captain Boomerang and Harley Quinn, the “convicted supervillains who have a chance to redeem themselves through dangerous missions.”
    Harley Quinn is the girlfriend of The Joker and a former psychiatrist with superhuman strength and intelligence.
    “Love makes us do crazy things. And for the bubbly and psychotic Harley Quinn, that includes dressing in costume, becoming a super-villain, carrying gag-themed weaponry, and murdering countless civilians—all just to put a smile on her puddin’s face,” DC Comics describes the character.

    Hes a massive douchebag, but a good actor.

    Viola Davis has made no secret of her dislike of Jared.



    How Jared Leto's Dead-Pig Stunt Affected Viola Davis' Suicide Squad Performance



    BY GREGORY WAKEMAN
    5 MONTHS AGO
    20 COMMENTS




    Viola Davis admitted to Vanity Fair that, before she even said a quick hello to the actor, Jared Leto had a henchman walk into the rehearsal room, drop the dead pig on the table, and then walk out. This immediately unsettled Viola Davis, who just assumed that she was now working with a bona-fide crazy person. However, the multi-award winning actress soon snapped out of this daze, and quickly realized that this would be good for her own performance:

    Now I'm terrified as a person thinking 'Is he crazy?' but the second part was 'Oh shit! I got to have my stuff together.' You talk about commitment and then he sends Margot Robbie a black rat. It was still alive in a box. She screamed, and then she kept it.
    While Margot Robbie got herself a pet rat while working on Suicide Squad, the Australian actress also caused havoc on the set by giving out tattoos to the members of the production team and cast. Some of these were spelt right. While others probably should have gone through some kind of spell-check. It was all part of the fun though.

    In Suicide Squad, Viola Davis plays arguably the most despicable character of all the ensemble; Amanda Waller. She is the one who brings Will Smith’s Deadshot, Jared Leto’s Joker, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flag, Jai Courtney’s Boomerang, Jay Hernandez’s El Diablo, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agdaje’s Killer Croc together for their hugely dangerous mission.






    Even in the film’s trailers, Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller has immediately come across as unsettlingly sinister, and the sort of woman who gets what she wants, without having to really do too much. You can check out the 50-year-old actress’ full discussion with Vanity Fair by watching the video below.


    Suicide Squad’s August 5 release date might still seem like a lifetime away, but withBatman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice now just over a month from hitting cinemas, there’s still plenty of DC fans to be hugely excited about.

    I deleted the article because that story apparently came from a satire site.
